Police: 2 Kansas officers shoot, kill woman at home

GARDNER, Kan. (AP) — Two police officers in the Kansas City suburb of Gardner, are on administrative leave after shooting and killing a woman during a reported disturbance at a house.

Olathe police say 53-year-old Deanne Choate of Gardner died at the scene of the shooting Thursday night. No officers were injured.

Police say after Choate’s boyfriend reported that Choate had fired a gun inside the house, two of the responding officers fired at Choate.

Police say one of the officers is a 10-year veteran of the police force, and the other has been with the department for a year and a half.
